William’s Atlantic Sunrise pipeline, slated for construction through Columbia County, has prevented the farmers of Hearts & Bones Farm from farming the land this season. While unable to use the fields for CSA and their market garden, organic farmers Chris McCallum and Jill Lashmett refuse to abandon their land to the natural gas industry.
This summer, with the help of the Columbia County Against the Pipeline Campaign, the Shalefield Organizing Committee, and the community, Hearts & Bones farm will be “Planted Against the Pipeline,” featuring flowers of resistance, a pumpkin patch, and more!
Planting will kick-off on Saturday June 3rd at 10 AM, where field will be planted with wildflowers, Sunflowers, and various types of Jack-o-Lantern Pumpkins!
Future events will be held throughout the summer to mulch the Pumpkin Patch, weed the field, and more. Volunteers will be needed throughout the summer, so if you can’t make our first event, stay tuned!
